Mexican writer Fernanda Gonzalez is just 11, but she lectures at schools and universities, has addressed lawmakers and has been nominated for an international award, thanks to a book she wrote with a message of equality between men and women.

The native of Guadalajara, the capital of the western state of Jalisco, said in an interview with EFE that her goal was to tell boys and girls that "all people have the same rights."

"If I have a message for children my age, it's that when we all grow up and become adults, we will have the chance to live in equality, and the quality of our social lives will be better than it is now," Fernanda said.

When she was 8, Fernanda wrote "¿Azul o rosa?" (Blue or Pink), a book that was published by the Mexican congressional Center for Studies on the Advancement of Women and Gender Equality two years later, leading her to talk to children in urban, rural and Indian communities, as well as at several universities.

The book emerged from a school project that addressed a subject "that is quite common all over the world," Fernanda said.
